NT555R's are manufactured with the original tread depth of 6/32nds" and are constructed with a specially formulated soft racing tread compound to provide maximum traction. High block rigidity, soft compounding and large contact patch provide extreme dry traction in race conditions. Low void ratio and large tread blocks optimize dry traction. Summer Track Compound.
The NT555R's compound is specifically designed to provide maximum sticky grip in the warm months on the street and the track. A reinforced belt package further improves handling and helps to prevent against punctures for road use. Application.
The Nitto Extreme Performance NT555R Drag Radial is a unique ultra-high performance tire that's also D.O.T.-approved, making it perfect for any street/strip Mustang owner.
NOTE: This is a high-performance tire intended for use during summer months or warm temperatures only. Use during cold weather will greatly reduce performance, traction and handling, and greatly increase stopping distance. If using this tire in a drag or track environment during cold weather, we strongly recommend performing a pre-run burnout to nominalize the tread compound's temperature.
